About Me

  1. Okay, this isn't REALLY a "Guide" so much as a set of pre-prepped builds in Mid's/Pine's. The basic touchstones are more or less identical across Tanks, Brutes, Scrappers and Sentinels. So I'm going to provide the templates pre-built and slotted out for Invuln, Fighting, Leaping, Maneuvers (when needed) and the basic expectations for Health and Stamina. Just plug in your attack primary/secondary and go to town. Updated 07-21-21 (Compatibility with newer Mids) (All frameworks updated!) Invuln Framework 2021 - TANK - Tanker (Invulnerability).mxd
  2. Hi Guys & Gals, This is going to be a bit of a niche guide on Fire Farming in the AE, using a Spines / Fiery Aura Brute as your Farmer of Choice. For those of you interested in this topic, there is a Great Thread on Fire Farming, including some amazing builds and results over ----> here Intrigued with the idea, I posted in that thread (here) but, basically being too chintzy to build one of those High-End purpled out builds, I decided it might be a fun project to see what I could build ... on the cheap, and see how it compared. It occurred to me (eve
  3. So I know the weakness in this build is lacking def debuffs. But my Elec/Regen is pretty fun to play. I don’t have the build on hand but I’m currently at S/L res of 65% and S/L def of about 42%. Global recharge of 58%, Using Lightning Rod, Spring Attack and my incarnate Pbaoe is pretty nasty. I’m mostly posting because I haven’t seen anyone post anything on Elec\Regen brutes. And was looking to compare. I’ll try to post Mids build later if I can get on my PC.
  4. Sooooooo....I have a spine/fire planned out, but I tweaked my plan a little and I have 9 slots leftover for Superior Conditioning and Physical Perfection. How would you recommend I slot them? If there's one left over after your help, I could slot in fly and be faster, which of course would be fun lol 🙂 Everything else is done. Please! Post a Mids link to your build. It's just easier for me. Thanks!
  5. "Welcome back Omnibus" Thanks Forums... Happy 4th of July to @Tyrannical. I believe your in UK time zone so I wanted to rub in your face the American Independence since we crushed the British. That is right I'm back with another powerset proposal. I'll go straight into the topic for this one. This is another melee set, the theme for this powerset is seismic. Now I know the vast majority of you may be thinking the following. Why do we need seismic melee if we have stone melee? Well "Seismic" is a potential energy that focuses on the forces responsible for channeling those natur

  7. How would you slot a fire/fire Brute with invention enhances? (This is a temporary fix.)? Just looking for complete build answer, please.
  8. Hi, I finally got my first character to level 50, where I only managed 49 back on live. So this is my first attampt at understanding the Incarnate system. I think I have a resonable handle on how the trees work, and how to make the things. The character is a vaguely Kryptonian inspired flying brick. For my Alpha slot I'm working towards the Spiritual Total Radial Revamp, as that seems to be the best option for this build. For the Justice slot I'm working towards some form of the Cyonic abilities for thematic reasons (Kryptonian Ice Breath) For
  9. I have been racking my brain on how to build this. Radiation armor just has too many useful powers. I cant seem to get away from taking the whole set. Could use some help.
  10. Looking for a build that is capable of running all content at high levels. Still confused on how Bio Armor is supposed to be built. Help?

    Help wanted

    looking to make an alternative/ fun farmer that is good for solo farms and also following another farmer looking at making a dark melee/fire aura brute, any and all help is appreciated and yes i understand it won't be as fast as a spines or rad fire, but already have a rad fire want something different. want to try. i want to try and make it as efficient and good for solo fire farming Version 1: http://www.cohplanner.com/mids/download.php?uc=1512&c=685&a=1370&f=HEX&dc=78DA6594D94F135114C66798A940A13B8502B2D52208525A40E39610156B549A9098F85A471961A429A4
  13. Hey guys, rolling a Brute. The stats say I have a decent thing going here, but I beseech ye build experts for any tips. Still new at this y'see. The character is not a farming character - it's built for concept more than anything. Let me know your guys' thoughts and if I'm missing anything or can slot something better than I already have.

  14. Hi, just hit 50 and have a bit of inf lying around, but I don't really know which sets to invest in. Looking at builds with SS, people seem to mostly go for resistance and defense, but builds with /Regen seem to focus on recharge. I couldn't find builds for my particular combo, so I don't know how to balance these two things or what else is important. Any builds would be super nice, general remarks are very welcome too, also regarding power choice, especially epic and pool sets. Thanks in advance and merry holidays!
  15. Hello all! I have always loved superheroes and never got the chance to play city of heroes when it first came out. I liked the idea of making a kind of toxic poison beast kind of character so spines and Bio fit the bill! I am hoping the build can become a bit of a workhorse to just tackle a whole bunch of things. Tanking with friends, solo farming/bossing, questing etc. It does not need to be great at any of those things it just needs to be able to do em' to some extent! I have downloaded Mid's and did a good deal of reading around the forums. Here is the build I came up with. ( Thematically I
  16. Hey guys! I guess this is only my 3rd post on these forums. I'm more of a reader and lurker. I wanted to suggest some changes to Ice Armor and get peoples feedback. It was my favorite armor back on live and still is here on homecoming, something about it just looks so cool to me. So much so that I recreated my main character from live with the same costume and everything. Ice Armor, however, continues to be the least or second least played armor set on any Archetype (Tanker, Scrapper, Stalker, Brute, and Sentinel). And when you look at the actual surviv
  17. Hi everyone, finally reached 50 with this toon and it’s time to actually build my Brute (because I just picked and dumped whatever while levelling). I know it won’t be an optimal build, but I’m trying to play a concept rather than a powerhouse (I am on the RP server after all). That being said, I still want to be able to survive the game. Anyone up to the challenge of helping me build something decent but cheap (because I spent most of my dough on a new Sentinel build for my main)? And here’s the tricky “concept” part… I want the following four teleportation powers (
  18. Hello all. I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with a solid, reliable end game build for my Katana/DA brute, but everything I work up just seems... lacking. Any help from folks more experienced with both power sets would be appreciated! Thanks.
  19. here's short question for pro PVPers: in lvl 50+ melee pvp, who has higher chances to win 1v1: scrapper or brute? considering best 1v1 melee pvp builds, enhancements and endgame stuff for this fight both for scrapper and brute side.
  20. What is better for sloing av’s and tf’s brute or scrapper. Was thinking ?/wp any suggestions im up for anything
  21. The other evening, my beloved Hexquisite reached 50. She's my first - including the years I spent on live- and I want to treat her to a full makeover before moving on to Incarnation (which is going to be a whole different can of 'what the hell am I looking at?') She's a classy lady, and deserves it. I spent more time than I want to admit working through a respec on Mids. Unfortunately, I am not someone for whom numbers make sense, and the more I stare, the more convinced I am that my dyscalculia is causing me to flip or miss things. And, simply put, I have never done this; on live,
  22. Hello friends. I just upgraded my cpu and now can handle the game beautifully at the 64 setting. That also means I can duelbox as well. So I made second account and will have just ONE toon on it. You guessed it, a farmer! XD That being said, I don't want to rehash the which set is best debate, but rather pose another question. Is Burn such a good power that taking that would justify taking the /Fire secondary? /Bio is awesome and I wouldn't have to worry about dying and I have a build already drawn up where I can be in the +End stance and still be capped out in Res to S/L. With all the

    StJ/WP Brute

    **Edited, reduced global recharge a bit. Increased AoE defense a lot** First post. Been a long time CoH/V player. Good to be back. I just found this server at the end of March and have been working on a Brute. Be gentle. First glance, my defenses look kinda low. Resists I am happy with, though. Recharge is decent. I am just looking for optimizations without sacrificing too much.

  24. Just started back 2 weeks ago, after a decade. I'm playing with a staff / sr, because it's fun. Games are supposed to be fun. Would love to see a decent build on pines. Thanks.
  25. Trying out my first Savage Melee/Willpower Brute, and I have questions. This is the build I've come up with in Mids thus far, and I wonder if I'm badly gimping myself. Are any of the primary or secondary powers readily skippable without too much harm? I'm strongly considering dumping Shred, as I'm not terribly fond of melee cones. That would let me move various other powers back earlier, give me skill slots to spend on Weave and a couple other places, and free up a power slot to spend on Energy Mastery/Superior Conditioning, which doesn't really need any slotting.
